Original title: Trickster’s Choise
I give this book 5 stars out of 5 possible.
This is a book that comes after the Song of the Lioness (I recommend that you read the books about Alanna first if you don’t want to spoil those books) and The Immortals series. It’s also after the Protector of the Small Quartet-series, but there’s no big spoiler for that one.
The sequal to Trickster’s Choice is Trickster’s Queen.
Aly decides to give her parents some breathing room and takes therefore her boat down the coast to Port Legann. But before she comes there she get caught by pirates and sold as a slave. Her owners must not know who she really is, and she has to do what the God asks to be able to get home.
I love how Ali thinks. She knows a lot of spy-stuff and she uses the knowledge all the time, even though she raises quesitons when she doesn’t remember to hide what she knows. A slave isn’t supposed to know as much as she knows.
I think this is a bit different to other books I’ve read by Tamora Pierce. The books about Beka (Terrier + Bloodhound, takes place quite long before the other series), Alanna and Kel about about proving yourself. The books about Daine are about finding yourself and get over your fears – kind of. This book is about protecting others and doing something with your life.
I don’t know how much I can say about this book. I like the language, it’s a nice vocabulary. Not too hard and not too easy to read. I really enjoyed reading this book and I can’t wait to read the sequel. And if I haven’t said it before: I definitely recommend Tamora Pierce’s books.
